Indiana 2019 Cramer Choir

Honoring the legacy of William Cramer, a founding member of the International Trombone Association and Professor of Trombone at Florida State University from 1952-1987, the Cramer Choir is a long-standing ITF tradition.  Featuring a select group of university professors from across the US and Canada, the group honors Cramer’s commitment to trombone teaching, performance, and repertoire through an innovative program combining new works and trombone choir standards.

Under the direction of Mark Kellogg, Associate Professor of Euphonium & Trombone and Brass Chamber Music Coordinator at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, the 2020 ITF Cramer Choir will feature a select roster of teaching artists, representing top college music programs from across the US.

This group will be featured in Saturday’s concert line-up, at the ITF!
